Episode Summary

Quibbling Siblings / Wheezie's Hairball
"Quibbling Siblings"
Zak is excited about trying to find a rare Jugglebug for school Sharing Time. But Wheezie's being a real pain - she makes noise when he's trying to sleep, ruins his breakfast and loses his magnifying glass. He retreats by placing a large cone over his head so he can't hear her. She doesn't understand why he's so angry, so Emmy and Max explain and Wheezie begins to realize how important the mission is to Zak.

"Wheezie's Hairball"
Emmy and Max are greeted in Dragon Land by a strange orange fur ball, Zak and Wheezie's new pet, Slurpy. They're learning how to take care of him, and it isn't easy! Since he can't talk, Slurpy tries to communicate by bouncing twice and spinning around.moreless

  • Zak sets out to catch a Jugglebug for show-and-tell at school, but Wheezie has been annoying him all day. The final straw comes when she loses Zak's magnifying glass, and he breaks out Wheezies' bane, the Alone Cone.moreless

    Very cute episode. The most memorable quote for me was when Wheezie spilled her cereal in Zak's cereal, and he said, "Hey! My Drax Flakes!" I don't know why that was so funny, but it was! What a name for a cereal! One thing that I don't get, Wheezie seems to fear the Alone Cone, yet she doesn't just take it off Zak's head when he puts it on and throw it away. I bet it's even harder to deal with one's siblings when they share a body with you.It must be awful to have to do everything together, including share a bedroom!moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

    • There are 2 captioning errors in "Quibbling Siblings." the first one is seen after Wheezie was playing drums in bed. When she sees Max and Emmy, she says in the captioning, "Hi Emmy! Hi Matt!" The other is when the four were searching for the jugglebug. When Emmy asks Zak how it sounds, Zak in text says, "Well, it sounds kind of like.. kinda like... (Jugglebug does its sound.) .. Zak!" It should obviously be "That!"

  • QUOTES (1)

    • Ord: And I have some French fries. But I don't have any ketchup, because I used it all on my peanut butter sandwiches.
      Cassie: Ketchup on peanut butter?!
      Emmy: GROSS!
      Max: Yum!
